For this discussion board assignment, I would like you to discuss neutralization or drift theory and the techniques of neutralization that are commonly associated with this theory. The techniques themselves are located in your textbook and will be covered during class. Make sure to include information on the following items in your response. Do you agree that the techniques if neutralization described by Sykes and Matza contribute to a higher likelihood of involvement in criminal or deviant behavior? Why or why not? If so, which of these techniques do you think is the most significant when it comes to increasing criminal propensity and why do you think this is the case? If not, how do you explain individuals being able to alternate between law abiding and law breaking behaviors and overcoming any guilt that might be associated with this transition? If you feel comfortable sharing with your classmates, describe (without getting into explicit detail) whether you have you ever found yourself using one of the techniques described by Sykes and Matza? Did you find that the techniques were effective in freeing you to engage in behavior that you might not have otherwise engaged in? What problems in addition to crime might arise from a widespread reliance on the techniques of neutralization described by Sykes and Matza? Make sure to support and defend the assertions that you advance in your response.
